What The Middle Of America Looks Like

Lebanon, Kansas is the true middle of the contiguous United States. Photographer J. Bennett Fitts is documenting this Middle America, a town that has lost a lot of population over the years.

Patrick James at GOOD writes, "During the last presidential election, the phrase "Middle America" was used routinely by both candidates and members of the media. "This constant buzz around 'Middle America' sparked my curiosity in what the literal middle of America actually was," writes the photographer J. Bennett Fitts, "if there was one at all.""
